Commissioned by the Parochial Church Council of Lacock with Bowden Hill, with a grant from the environmental and community charity Wiltshire Scrapstore. Part of Sheona Beaumont’s residency at St Cyriac’s Lacock.
An 8-panel, 35-aperture photographic installation, originally displayed in the south transept at St Cyriac’s Church, Lacock. Remembrance Rood Screen commemorates the service and commitment shown by local servicemen and women during the First World War. The piece is the culmination of a community art project in which residents were invited to share their photographs, medals, clippings and other objects connected to war time. 24 images feature lenticular photography, with a dissolve effect appearing to change the images as the viewer passes in front of them.Notebook Spotlight: 11 December 2019
